Clean Food. Healthy Bodies.

3 All-Natural, Affordable Beauty Brands

2 Comments

As if you needed another reason to love Target!

Chemicals in your beauty products mean chemicals are absorbed by your skin and allowed passage into your blood stream and internal organs. Affordable-Beauty-Must-HavesNot good.

Just like food, when you’re shopping for beauty products, look for items with only a few ingredients. Also like packaged food, keep in mind that the first 3 ingredients listed on a beauty product comprise approximately 98% of that particular item; meaning you want those first 3 ingredients to be naturally derived and easily recognizable. If you don’t know what it is nor how to pronounce it, you can be sure your body doesn’t either!

So how does this relate to Target?

Target is about to launch a toxic rating system that will grade beauty products on a scale of 0 to 100. The higher the score, the ‘cleaner’ the product is. For instance, products that aren’t tested on animals, contain a low concentration of toxic or irritating ingredients and have minimal packaging will be rated high.

This system may take up to a year to arrive at a store near you, so in the meantime, keep an eye out for these fantastic, natural brands:

Shea Moisture:

  • Coconut & Shea Butter Hand Cream
  • Coconut &Hibiscus Hand and Body Scrub
  • Coconut & Hibiscus Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Shea Butter Soap

Pacifica:s488578955539485895_p34_i1_w429

  • Mineral Lip Tint and Eye Pencils
  • Body Butter
  • Day & Night Face Lotion
  • Purify Coconut Cleansing Wipes

Burt’s Bees:

  • Baby Bee Bubble Bath
  • Fresh Peppermint & Rosemary Body Wash
  • Party Lips: Lip Balm
  • Fragrance Free Nourishing Lotion

As our awareness of toxicity and chemical exposure grows, the health and beauty market must also respond and react. The 3 all-natural beauty brands listed above are affordable, appealing options for those looking to nourish the outside without harming the in.

So kudos to Target and to companies like Shea, Pacifica and Burt’s Bees, who are also concerned with the health of our products and are actively taking strides to turn it around.
